Abstract

The publication of Queer Voices in Post-War Scotland: Male Homosexuality, Religion and Society by Jeffrey Meek and Masculinities on Clydeside: Men in Reserved Occupations During the Second World War by Alison Chand mark important interventions into the historiographies of the history of sexuality and gender history respectively. Both fields have been lacking in rich, place specific studies, to problematise existing narratives that claim to represent Britain but often, only represent England. Here, in both studies, lost areas of Scottish history have been reclaimed to allow historians to rethink what it meant to be a man in Scotland from the 1940s onwards. Alison Chand's Masculinities on Clydeside, reclaims the experiences of men who worked in reserved occupations during the Second World War, a group who have often been neglected in studies of the period, and in doing so, challenges the notion that the Second World War was a catalyst for deep and lasting social change.  [Author]
